Take time to be kind

I’m a long-time resident of Parker, with a few detours for job opportunities beyond Colorado. I always returned because Colorado was in my blood, and in my heart. 

Recently, I was on my way into my doctor’s office when I tripped over a patch of concrete that was no longer flush with the pavement. I was momentarily airborne before smashing onto the ground. I’m grateful no bones were broken, though I have a collection of deep and colorful bruises, bloodied body parts, and painful, aching ribs to show for it. 

The most painful part, however, was that several fellow citizens saw and ignored my distress. Is this what Parker has become? I hope not! In spite of the circumstances, I choose to fall on the side of kindness. Take time to be kind. Not only will others appreciate it, you’ll find a new lightness in your step.

Just watch out for uneven concrete!
